The everyday processes in a clinic or laboratory are complex. Patient safety has the highest priority. The quality of care must be guaranteed at all times. The correct identification of a sample in the laboratory can be as life-saving as locating equipment, preparing surgical instruments or monitoring compliance with hygiene standards.

Hospital management 2020 means: Efficient digitalization strategies geared to everyday processes. These include laundry management with laundry lockers or rooms, the use of pneumatic delivery systems, patient-care robots and the rapid connection between laboratories and wards, the identification of patients and staff, the location and digital maintenance of medical equipment, the monitoring of surgical plans, and the temperature of drugs, laboratory samples and blood donations.

All optimizations and cost reductions depend on an integrated digitalization strategy and the use of WIoT technologies such as RFID, NFC, BLE or WiFi.

The Smart City follows three objectives: Energy efficiency, security and the best possible inclusion of its inhabitants. In numerous applications, wireless IoT technologies illustrate ways in which processes can be connected, streamlined and made transparent.

Recycling containers automatically report their filling level, parking spaces communicate whether they are free or occupied, and sensors control street lighting according to actual demand. Wireless IoT technologies are already the backbone of a Smart City today. If transparent data is available, process efficiency is increased, energy consumption is reduced, and the safety of residents is optimized.

The digital transformation of inner-city processes and services creates numerous interfaces for engaging residents. Active participation unfolds a multifaceted potential to make life in cities safer, healthier, and more convenient.
